The President acts as Chair of the Board and of the SRC, presiding over meetings, ensuring compliance with the Constitution and Terms of Reference, overseeing the performance of elected Representatives, and ensuring the SRC genuinely represents the student voice of all students at UON.
In addition to the overarching functions of the SRC, it is the responsibility of the President to be the first point of contact for the University in promoting student partnership and decision-making. This may include being part of UON project teams, being a member UON Council or other UON committees to provide a genuine voice for students in key areas of University decision-making.
The President’s primary role is to lead the UNSA in representing, campaigning for and serving the needs of students at the University of Newcastle.
The President works closely with the UNSA Professional Manager and other UNSA staff, as well as with the other members of the SRC Executive to achieve all these responsibilities.
